Sam McBratney’s words and Anita Jeram’s illustrations unite harmoniously in this modern classic, first published in 1994 by Walker Books.
On his way to bed, Little Nutbrown Hare decides to take the daunting task of describing his feelings for Big Nutbrown Hare, who, in turn, accepts the challenge and tries to do the same. Measuring love turns out to be much more complicated than it seemed - and the two have a great time figuring out new (and funny) ways to show how massive their fondness for each other truly is.
An ode to love, Sam’s prose is simple and sincere - perfectly crafted to reach everyone’s heart -, and its message is profound, powerful and full of enchantment.
Anita’s marvelous watercolors are the perfect complement, amplifying the warmth and fascination contained in every sentence, solacing and uplifting the soul with their overwhelming beauty.
Deeply charming and endearing, this is a story that has captivated the hearts of millions of children and adults in the past twenty years - and will, most certainly, become a favorite of many millions more.
